Subject: RE: Gtr: Are strings >10 bad for you?
If you want to bend notes, use light gauge strings. If you want an easy action, get a good setup. Light strings are often used to camouflage a guitar which needs the frets levelled dressed and polished, the relief adjusted, and the height (and contours) of nut and saddle set. I had a guitar which seemed ok but not a joy to play, and I'd put 10's on; after a setup from Eddie Green 12's are ideal.
